5:02pm
tourist attraction but the clock stopped on the rock 50 years ago today. and now you know news for this thursday, march the 21st, 2013. i'm shepard smith. we're back tomorrow noon pacific, 3:00 eastern for "studio b." you should check that back here for "the fox report." right now it's bill's turn. >> bill: the o'reilly factor is on. tonight: >> on easter morning peter was off again only now he was the easter bunny. >> bill: a bunch of school districts across the country banning the word easter. that's right, easter. easter bunny, easter eggs all not acceptable. but why? we have a special report and laura ingraham will weigh in. >> i am offended for the people of my district at the university of tennessee having sex week. >> bill: big controversy in the volunteer state over the university paying for student sex week.
5:03pm
we will take you to the campus for a debate. >> -- you can have the car and everything that goes along with it it. >> bill: what about the devil? on the heels of the satan bible mini series controversy. what are judeo theologies now teaching about the prince of darkness. >> we make mistakes we call it evil. when god makes mistakes they call it nature. >> bill: caution. you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. more evidence that judeo-christian tradition sunday attack in america. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. if you watched the factor, you know that we won the war on christmas battle. a few years ago some
5:04pm
measure companies ordered their employees not to say merry christmas. remember that? we presented the facts to you, you told the stores you wouldn't buy there the crazy edict was quickly rescinded. power to the people. but the war on judeo-christian tradition continues on in some public school distribution. in 10 days it will be easter sunday. in some schools you are not allowed to say the word easter. on long island, the east meadow school district holding a spring egg hunt not easter heck eggs. spring eggs. same thing in prospect heights, illinois. manhattan beach. flat rock elementary school and a school district in new cumberland, pennsylvania. no easter. they are having spring egg events. moderated by a spring bunny, at least in san diego. i know it's stupid. you know it's stupid. but it's happening and there is a reason why it's happening. secular progressives are
5:05pm
running wild with president obama and the white house. they feel unchained, liberated and they are trying to diminish any form of religion. the goal is to marginalize religious opposition to secular programs. for example, in canada, in china, a woman can have an abortion for any reason at any time. secular progressives want that here. but traditional forces in america are in opposition. therefore, in this country, you can't terminate a baby without to be born without a damn good reason. if you do abort a latham late term baby you can be charged with murder. sp's hate that in scandinavia there are laws that say you cannot criticize minorities and if you do, you could be arrested. secular progressives want laws like that here. also, of the legalization of drugs well underway in many places. and that is the secular cause. so, if the far left can marginalize santa and the easter bunny. if they can tell the children those symbols are
5:06pm
obsolete and unnecessary, they then set the stage for a totally secular society in the future. and that's what you have in scandinavia. and that's why the easter bunny is on the run here in america. and that's the memo. now for top story tonight joining us from washington fox news am list laura ingraham. one of the reasons these crazy public school districts get away with the spring egg business is that traditional opposition is largely evaporating. or am i wrong, laura? >> i don't know if it's evaporated, bill. i think you are on to something. people who are traditionally faithful, that could be traditional jews, traditional christians, i think they understand society has become more secular. a lot of them, i think, are fearful. i think there is a lot of demonization by the secular progressives of christians. i think they feel what ostracized. maybe bill they think there is a new era of persecution
5:07pm
that we have never seen in this country before toward traditional faith. ever seen it before that we're beginning to see now. it's coming in different forms. >> bill: they should be outraged then. let me give you my point of view and then you can tell me how wrong i am. east meadow long island, that's where i grew up. that's part of lovitt town that nexus out there. >> sure, i know it well. >> bill: 50 years ago that could have never happened in east meadow. never in a million years. to this deist meadow remains a christian community with a jewish population as well but largely christian. all right? now, the east meadow school district flat out insults every christian that lives there. every christian. you can't see easter. you can't say it. >> of course not. >> bill: 50 years ago there would have been marches on that school there would have been signs and town meetings. nothing now. nothing. >> whose fault is this? >> it's our fault and here is why. >> they are afraid. traditional people are
5:08pm
afraid. >> that's what i said. >> see people like me, like you, all right? other traditional commentators get attacked viciously, violently in the worst possible ways. >> attacked, sued. they will try to run you out much business. they will try to boycott your businesses as we saw with hobby lobby. steve greene who has that chain of craft stores employs tens of thousands of people they might shut that chain of stores down because of what they are dealing with. >> bill: the chicken thing? >> they are doing okay. look, i think the better way of looking at this maybe, bill, is we were never promised a rose garden. if you are a traditional just catholic even a traditional muslim. your holly book does not tell you that you are going to have an easy time of it being a faithful person. we are all flawed. as christians we believe we are all sinners, we fall down every day and try to get ourselves back up. we do believe there is san ideal. even though sometimes we can't live up to it it's up
5:09pm
to us as christians to spread the good word. to neighbors, to friends, to be as faithful as we can. >> bill: that's a nice theory. it ain't happening. >> not a theory we are not doing that to the extent we need to so the society is becoming more secular. >> bill: there is no national leader in this country. billy graham is in his 90's. he is off the stage. all right? there is nobody who can really galvanize the traditional forces and say let's go down to -- >> -- jesus is the one who galvanize. >> tell these people to to knock off insulting easter. that's what it is, ladies and gentlemen. it's an insult to you. if you believe in easter. if you know that that holiday is designed to plootion please children in a secular. the east are bunny does not have any association to the resurrection of jesus. >> bill, i would say there is a real cautionary tale here. as we have seen christianity especially erode from europe. europe has become poorer
5:10pm
and europe has become much less powerful. and it will happen over time. there will be ebbs and flows. but i think in this country as we become more secular and perhaps more progressive, but especially more secular. if the traditional people feel like it's always a war against them. if they are the evil doers. if he they're the haters, they are going to receive from public life, maybe from civic life, maybe they are not going to signed up to be in the military as much. maybe they are just going to -- we are going to take care of our families. keep our heads down and read our bible. read our holly books and that's going to work. >> bill: i think it's happened already. so outrageous what's gone on here. >> for america that's sad. america as a result will become poorer and weaker and less influential in the world. it happened in the former soviet union. >> you know what i would do if i were president, i would say i would name the districts we just named here and i would say knock it off. respect easter. easter is a good thing. you don't have to believe in jesus. the kids like it.
5:11pm
it's not a spring egg. it's an east err egg. >> when you said a spring egg. i thought there literally was a spring on an egg. i didn't know what you was talking about. >> bill: item on chinese menu. >> we need good judges, bill. we need judges that don't make up stuff that's not in the constitution. >> bill: we need leaders in this country. leaders who respect the tradition of the country. >> spread the good word. that has to be done by christians. exactly. >> bill: next on the run down, big controversy in tennessee where state-funded university, the university of tennessee was going to spend money, tax money on student sex week. all hell is breaking loose. and then, talking about hell, what about satan? he is in the news because of the obama bible mini series controversy. we will talk with two theologians about the devil. those reports after these messages. both tylenol and bayer advanced aspirin are proven to be effective pain relievers. tylenol works by blocking pain signals to your brain.

>> bill: impact segment tonight. big controversy at the university of tennessee beginning on april 5th. there will be a sex week for students there the university had committed about $11,000 in taxpayer funds to that exposition. some lawmakers in nashville heard about that. they threatened to cut off all funding for the university of tennessee, knoxville. so the university backed down, saying it will now spend only $6,700 in student funds for sex week. joining us from knoxville, two co-chairs of sex week. jacob clark a jr. and briana raider also a junior of the university of ms. raider do you understand some ten tennessees don't want their tax money going for that. >> i understand. we have a firm stance this is an important educational event. the decision maybe made. it's out of our hands now. we have to move forward. >> bill: all right. so your your educational
5:16pm
5:17pm
sex week stuff about how to protect yourself, about responsibility. about, maybe, what the right and wrong of it is, as far as we're americans and this is how we should treat each other, i think that's fine. but, the how-two stuff. i think i would have charged admission for that a couple of bucks and not had any private money going to that. any public money going to that. just do that privately on the side. so, if people want to see that kind of stuff, they pay for it. would that have been unreasonable? >> yes. that would have been unreasonable. i disagree because we submitted a survey that many over 500 of our students filled out. and we provided programming based on their survey. and we're providing student fees. >> >> bill: you are telling me that the taxpayers of american should be beholden to college kids to pay for what they want. if that were the case, at marist college, the taxpayers of new york would have been buying kegs all day long. come on. kids are kids. they want what they want. we don't have to pay for it
5:18pm
wait, ms. raider. i want to stay on it it come on. >> the how-to section that we are doing is being paid by student programming fees. they would rather have their money going for something else. charge college students pay for it on their own. you wouldn't have any controversy at all. >> we have a lot of events that other students don't want to go to every week. that don't -- that never charge admission. every student group who follows the procedure of the university has the same chance to get fees to pay for certain events as every other. we didn't -- it didn't follow precedent. it didn't follow any sort of traditional way of putting events of this type on to charge admission. >> bill: all right. i know what you are doing now because you got cut back, you are raising private money for this thing. right? that's what you are doing now? people are just giving you donations and all of that?
5:19pm
should have done that for the whole thing. take it out of the public arena. have your sex week deal. dean going to give you some place to do it raise it it privately. that seems to be the fair way to do it. if the 500 dopey kids want to see something. let them pay for it that is just life. he we appreciate you guys coming on to debate it many of you wouldn't have done that and we appreciate it thank you very much. directly ahead, off to satan bible mini series controversy. discussion will the real devil. do theologians think he actually exists in the world? right back with that report. lesser-known counterpa. conquer them with the exhilarating is 250. get great values on your favorite lexus models during the cmand performance sales event. th is the pursuit of perfection.

>> bill: factor follow up segment tonight. very unlikely controversy erupted this week over the mini series the bible. some believe that the actor who plays the devil was made up to look like barack obama. producer of the program
5:23pm
deny that but the likeness is undeniable. we wanted to update the status of lucifer the prince of darkness. what is the current wisdom regarding him? joining us now from philadelphia rabbi, the author of the book "push back reclaiming the american judeo-christian spirit" and doctor who teaches theology. dr. rudy, and the rabbi writes about. this the bible is fairly clear that god and the devil set up the classic good vs. evil free-will decisions that people have to make on earth. that's why we have both god and the devil. god representing good. the devil representing evil. do you believe, doctor, first of all on the god front that there is an act of god who does exist and actually influences what happens here on earth? >> definitely. that there is an active god and also that there is an active evil principle that we might call the devil an angel that was created good but fell through his own
5:24pm
free will and is presence of evil in the world. >> these are spirits that actively have effects on human beings. that's your belief, dr. rudddy. how about you do you see this the same way. >> we don't believe in the actual devil. during the time of creation, god allowed at least a force of evil. even within people there is the constant struggle between our good inclinations and some of our unsavory inclinations. it's not an actual being but they are forces outside of us and there are sentiments within us. >> bill: yoneld the -- i don't understand the word for force though. is that a spirit? is that an instinct within people? what is a force? >> within man it's an instinct. there are instincts towards good and instincts towards evil. outside oof man. >> bill: these written harnt in every human being who is born on earth there
5:25pm
are instincts to go either way. there is a pull and a push between god. i know you believe in god, rabbi and what you call the other force. but you say you don't believe in the devil? >> i don't believe in the devil per se. now, in the bible, there is mention of in job of satan coming which is more of an allegorical character. a figure to represent evil that's found in the world. part of our dual inclinations. evil spirit if you will or something that injects himself for a better pronoun. certainly a sense that we can be tempted by this evil press presence, this evil power but yet we are free as human beings to resist that or to reject it. it's not a case of god and satan being equal partners.
5:26pm
>> bill: so the professor of theology the catholic u sees some force as you said, rabbi. a spirit that is actively, all right. pulling people to do wrong. you don't see it that way. you see it as everybody is born with both the inclination to do good and evil and then the person has to decide which way they want to go. then, rabbi, how do you explain the people who choose evil. how do you explain those people? and what happens to them after they die? ie adolf hitler, people like that? >> i do believe that people who have a life where they choose tremendous evil and harm people disproportionately, they do end up in hell. do i believe that there is a heaven and a hell and there is a judgment. no question. people sometimes choose evil because they are lazy. they haven't worked on themselves and sometimes it's simply because they have ambitions. lusts and they don't bow to the authority of the almighty to great authorities and they allow the evil to overtake them. they almost lose their
5:27pm
capacity for freedom of will. >> it's always a free decision unless you are mentally ill and incapacitated. >> always. >> do you see it that way as well, doctor? do you see it that you are going to be judged after you die? there is going to be a reward or punishment? >> definitely. there is accountability that we will be judged on what we have done or not. in that sense we are free to resist evil. to succumb to it in and that sense we're responsible they know it when do you something bad, it is something inside you. you know, this isn't right. the people who are slaughtering other people. and maiming other people. betraying other people and stealing. they know what they are doing is wrong. bill because they succumb to the immediate grawsks of what they-gratification of what they want.
5:28pm
>> bill: don't this think there is a payday down the road for that? >> they should. if they had the right teaching ultimately we will be accountable in the fairness god created the world of accountability. >> bill: secular atheists that say once you are dead you are dead. giving you the last word, doctor. more people are choosing to do evil today than ever before in the history of this planet. >> i disagree. this is a constant human temptation. we seek what is outright evil. more often we seek what we think is good for us but which is actually evil in the end. >> bill: you really think that? i'm seeing every day so many other things done to terrible people around this world it's just staggering. that's my job. i have to deal with it every day. that was a fascinating discussion you guys. i really appreciate you coming on. plenty for that ahead as the factor moves along this evening. vicious brawl in upstate, new york. >> i'm not fighting [bleep] >> fighting me. >> yes! [bleep] [bleep] >> bill: that screaming mother urging her daughter to fight has been arrested.

[my windows again ever] >> bill: the voice you heard was the mother cursing and encouraging her daughter to inflict violence on the other. she says it was because her daughter has been bull idea. she sunday arrest. joining us from los angeles wendy walsh and dr. bonnie forester. there have always been bad parents, everybody knows that in your opinion, has there been a change in that kind of extreme behavior? i know parents who use drugs in front of their children. who swear in front of their children. who take their children to terrible movies. who have no boundaries at all. is this rare? or is now that becoming
5:34pm
more common? >> i think this extreme is rare, bill but overall you are absolutely right. parents are stressed so they resort to strategies in the moment to try to fix the situation instead of thinking about the long term that you have to have a good relationship with your child and that's not going to model the behavior that we want them to have in the long term. so, it's the easy fix. suppresse're too stressed. we have got two jobs. we don't know how to take the larger strategies or that will take more time. and allow us to help us develop the skills like social skills and reasoning and problem solving. those take time to develop, bill. and we don't have that time. so, as a result of our stress, i think we resort to spanking and hitting and doing these horrible things that -- >> bill: you say you don't have the time. you can make the time. you don't have to work two jobs. you won't live as well or whatever. it's a decision. but,. >> i agree with you. >> bill: the problem that we are seeing now is i
5:35pm
think many parents try to buy cooperation and affection of their children. they are trying to buy it okay? because, you know, rather than say to the kid, listen, here is the boundary and here is what you do. and the kid starts to mouth off and don't like them, they say i really don't want to deal with that i will give them what they want. in fact, i will give them more so they like me. i think that's what's going on. >> yeah, because i think parents are are -- have a lot of guilt. either they are both stressing and working full time because they think they need two cars and three bathrooms or they are a single parent or divorced dad who only sees his kid once every week or every other week so he feels guilty. as a result there is a lot of jelly fish parenting going around. really loose, loose boundaries. at the other end, there are some parents that tend to be kind of what i call bring wall parents where it's very very strict. another thing that's happened, bill, we have come to this realization that corporal punishment doesn't work and is, perhaps, quite bad for children.
5:36pm
it just teaches kids how to be bullies themselves. as patients take away the spanking, they have no other tools, no other parenting skills. they don't know about positive parenting. about logical consequences. how to remove the technology when it's time. that's part of it. we need some more parenting skills. >> bill: this woman who we saw in the brawl dr. forest is ignorant. anybody do that not only her child or any other child if you have got a bullying problem take it to the authorities. you don't have your daughter out in the street assaulting another girl no matter what the situation is this is insane. so, -- >> -- i think if you look on her facebook page she was, bill, i want to sort of validate she was trying to defend her kid. she did it in the wrong way. >> bill: you don't defend your child in this way. that's not the way to do it. we are not the to theres here. you know pillaging villages. there is a structure. it's frustrating but you have got to operate within it. look, the lesson taught to
5:37pm
this 15-year-old this is how you resolve it you assault somebody else and here is my mom telling me it's a good thing. that's just horrible. >> bill, i agree with you. it's absolutely horrible. i wouldn't excuse it here is the issue. i think you are seeing a lot of parents feeling pressed against the wall. okay? she didn't know what else to do. >> bill: i didn't believe that for a second. i believe that this woman was taking her frustrations out. wanted to hurt the kid herself and using her daughter as a surrogate. >> i think it's intergenerational. violence was probably used against the mother when she was young. >> i don't want to speculate like that. we see what the women -- the woman did. i don't want to speculate whether she had a bad childhood or not. there comes a point if you are going to have a child you have to it be a parent that looked out for the kid. sometimes that means being tough with the kid. you always have to be fair. that kind of exposition she deserves to be arrested and she deserves to be prosecuted. i will give you the last word, dr. walsh, go. >> i think that so many parents want to be friends with their kids these days
5:38pm
too. they are facebook friends. this all started by the way bill with the baby boom generation who didn't want to be called mrs. walsh or mr. o'reilly because it felt old in some ways. so now we are all on a first name basis with kids and they think they can mouth back to us. it's our own fault. i think we created it. >> bill: you made one mistake you said we are all on that. right here we are not on that program. >> we are not there. >> bill: we never will be. megyn kelly on president obama's choice for secretary of labor. he may be a racial activist. and then the best of dennis miller. the d man running wild this evening upcoming.
